HMS Ganges was a shore training establishment of the British Royal Navy. A group of ratings is spelling out the word “Ganges” as a further group are lined across the field. To the right may be seen the artificial mast that cadets learned to climb. In the sea beyond stand warships and other vessels. Muncaster was particularly keen on helicopters for obtaining an alternative view of a scene
